My pop drank silver bullets. Probably the first beer I ever had.

Afive-year-old boy is missing and four of his family members were hospitalised after their car was swept away by floodwaters in central-western New South Wales.
Police said their car was travelling along McGrane Way near Tullamore at about 8pm on Friday when it became trapped in floodwaters.
Emergency services rescued two other children and their parents, who were found clinging to trees.

However, the five-year-old boy remains missing and police are waiting to access the submerged vehicles.
The occupants of a second vehicle who became trapped managed to swim to safety and raise the alarm.
The four rescued people have been taken by ambulance to Dubbo Hospital for treatment.
A woman remains in a critical but stable condition, two children are stable, while a man has been discharged from hospital.
SES Assistant Commissioner Sean Kearns said it was an "extremely wet time across the state".
"Most river systems in western NSW are in some sort of flood, so we are warning the community to take heed when they travel," he said.
Tullamore is about 90 kilometres north-west of Parkes.
Across NSW, there are 19 flood warnings in place, and the State Emergency Service [SES] has conducted five flood rescues overnight.
The area of most concern is around Gunnedah in the state's north-east.
SES volunteers have door-knocked some residents, warning them to be on alert.
Bureau of Meteorology [BOM] forecaster Grace Legge said the catchment is saturated and the peak from the Peel River and outflows from Keepit Dam are combining.
"It will affect those low-lying areas — anyone near the river systems can be definitely impacted with water over the roads and crossings as well so as always 'if it's flooded, forget it'," she said.
"The levels could be higher than the flood levels that were experienced last weekend as well, just from the recent rainfall we are just seeing a lot of water that's pushing through, so it's combining from outflows from multiple areas and pushing down into the Gunnedah area."
The Namoi River passed the major flood level on Friday night. It is currently at 8.21 metres and rising.

Thanks so much for the update mate.
This is so serious and sad.
We can only hope that the water levels drop in those areas.
A big shout out to all the emergency services who give up their time to help minimise the heartbreak of flood victims. 🙏

It's been like that for months and doesn't look like it's going to stop anytime soon.
The ground is so wet that even dew is running it the river system.
I feel sorry for the people down stream from Bathurst, in all my time here Iv'e never seen the Macqurie river so full for months on end.

Not much fun mate, keep safe. I don't know what to say.
I award you 5 days of WTF Friendly Flyer Points.
Noone can argue with you or ruffle your feathers for 5 days. 🙂
